Comments

After the Wildcat’s win over Toledo to start the season, head coach Mark Stoops said that his team didn’t excecute very well early in the game. This should be expected given the number of key starters that are gone from the 2018 team. Eastern Michigan presents another challenge for the Wildcats. Keep in mind that EMU beat Toledo last season so they may be better this season than the Rockets. The Wildcats need to take this game seriously and execute better throughout the game. A loss to Eastern and you are in the same world Tennessee is in now (chaos).
